Palette

I always had difficulty to understand the theory of colors. For some reason I could not explain, the Art School did not seem to contemplate something that stayed both explicit and hidden. The objectivity with which the experts have attempted to harmonize the colors, seems to have no place in our reality. The reinvention of daily life and the everyday improvisation become more interesting for me than the combinations resulting from theories. Women dress and combine their clothes based on what they like and can. The bodies, supporters of the fashion industry and used by propa- ganda, are presented to us without any subjectivity or individuality. However, in the real world of the streets, women are the ones who rebuild this relationship. As architects of a reconstruction full of subjectivity, they reveal a world of combinations that, when viewed under a loving look, help us better understand this profound universe called Latin America.
